Blessed are the clean of heart;
they will see God.
Blessed are the humble of heart;
they will find rest for their souls.
Blessed are the warm-hearted;
they will radiate goodness.
Blessed are those who work with the heart;
they will find joy in their work.
Blessed are those who do not lose heart;
they will find the strength to persevere.
And blessed are those who set their hearts on the Kingdom of God;
everything else will be given to them.

Kerry Person of the Year
Congratulations to Tomás Garvey who has been selected by the Kerry Association in Dublin as their Kerry person of the year. Le gach dea-ghuí ón bparóiste.
We often stick with the old and what seems safe and reliable. This is good and important on occasions but it is also good to try new things in life. Our outlook in life changes as time passes. Every day we adapt to changes all around us. Life moulds us and shapes us. What was once important to us, may now no longer be so. Our Gospels encourage us to be open to life and especially all that is refreshing and life giving in our own lives. To be open to what’s new can be risky but always challenging, fufilling and a great place to be.
